Oyster Dressing

You need to know this about me.  I was born in the north–lived there for 10 years–and then we moved to the south–lived there for 24 1/2 years. Now we are in Colorado and have been for the last 5 years.  So you could say I have had the experience of northern, western and southern Thanksgivings.  I would say this dressing is a northern dressing.  My southern husband will not touch it.  But I LOVE it.  It is rich and delightful to my taste-buds.  So perhaps you will like this…perhaps not. Give it a try!

Turkey giblets (Don’t know what they are? Click here.)
1 loaf of your favorite bread
1 medium onion, minced finely
1 t. salt
1 1/2 t. sage
3 eggs
1/8 t. pepper
1 container oysters, drain and reserve 2 T. of this liquid
1/2 c. drippings from the cooked turkey (drippings are the liquid at the bottom of the turley pan–the oils and juices from the turkey)

Boil giblets from turkey. Using the broth from this, lightly wet a loaf of bread and add, 1 finely minced onion, 1 t. salt, 1 1/2 t. sage, 3 eggs and pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly. Gently add in 1 container of oysters with 2 T. of the liquid. Divide mixture in half and cook in two pie pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

In the middle of cooking, drip some turkey drippings on it to make a nice crust. A family Thanksgiving favorite!!
